She is a bit country, he FOUNDED rock and roll with his technology. I remember seeing them on the teevee when I was a kid and thinking that Mary was the most beautiful woman in the world.
No guitar player in the world of toady can say that he or she did it on their own. They all stand on Les' shoulders.
When I'm messing around on the computer, this is often playing in the background.

With the sad departure of his death on Thursday, these recordings are most special to listen to and enjoy. Now more than ever.

Subject: a great insight
these are a great insight into a time a bit before the rock and roll explosion. i found these really enjoyable, and can listen to them over and over again. some of the material is repeated, but that okay. if you love guitar these are a must, tell your friends.. the sound is ok also

sav rekons 4.5 to 5 stars

Subject: OUTSTANDING!!!!
These recordings are an amazing find!
Not only do you get a great sampling of the genius that is Les Paul, but the quality is unbelievable for this era. I mean, STEREO!
A great, if short, download. Five hours of grooviness!!!

He remains at the top of recording, designing endless sustain guitars and guitar technique that stuns (and always) with or without multi-recording. He is one man!!! Just listen!!!
He was looked up to by one of the world's best guitarists, Chet Atkins, the best of Rock and the rest of us. His guitar is in such demand that thousands think Les Paul is a guitar. They are right AND ALMOST!!!!!!!!!!!

A delightful showcase of this innovative master of the electric guitar. The vocals and accompanying musicians are wonderful, but it is Paul's immaculate guitar style that carries these selections.
